About Us

We believe that every Marine is a leader. At the Marine Corps Association Foundation we help develop leaders by providing forums for Marines to develop professionally, exchange ideas and preserve the traditions of the Corps. We stand by Marines with valuable resources through every step of their Marine Corps journey. This is possible through donations and membership dues of Marines, their families and friends of the Corps – people like you!

The Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, that was established in 2009, and partners with the Marine Corps Association – an organization established in 1913 by the United States Marine Corps to fill the void in programs that could not be supported by appropriated funds. We maintained that mission when the Marine Corps Association became a non-profit organization in the 1970s and we continue to meet those goals through the joint efforts of the Marine Corps Association and Foundation today.

When you donate or join you are directly supporting active-duty Marines through our programs!
